Linda asks…

What happened at the Diet of Worms in 1521?

weight loss cardiff answers:

The Diet of Worms was the most famous of the imperial diets held at Worms, Germany. It was opened in Jan., 1521, by Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. After disposing of other business, notably the question of the Reichsregiment, the diet took up the question of the recalcitrant behavior of Martin Luther. Charles was induced to summon Luther, who arrived at Worms under a safe-conduct on Apr. 16. At the diet Luther was asked if he would retract his teachings condemned by the pope. After a day’s meditation he refused. For a week various theologians argued with him, but he would not retire from his ground. According to tradition Luther ended his defense on Apr. 18 with the words, “Here I stand. I cannot do otherwise. God help me. Amen.” Finally, on Apr. 26, the emperor, seeing that the dispute was fruitless, ordered Luther to leave the city. He was formally declared an outlaw in the Edict of Worms (May 25); the lines of the Reformation were thereby hardened.

Lisa asks…

what was martin luther (not king jr.) accused of at the diet of worms?

i know he was accused of being a heretic, but my teacher said he was also accused of other things.. but i cant find anything else.

The Diet of Worms resulted in the Edict of Worms. This Edict, issued by Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, condemned Martin Luther as a heretic and it authorizes the censoring of Luther’s work, making Luther’s writings illegal to read or have, as well as, the arrest of Martin Luther. Due to a number of circumstances, it was not really enforced.

Betty asks…

besides giving the speech ath the diet of worms, what else did martin luther do during the reformation period?

weight loss cardiff answers:

He translated the Bible into German, continued to be a professor of Theology at the University of Wittenburg, he wrote a bunch of letters and books, hosted many parties at his house for his friends (They were the talk of the town, or the country I should say! People from all over Europe would come to his house just to have dinner with him and participate in his evening sing-alongs!), got married and fathered six children, wrote a lot of beautiful poetry and hymns including “A Mighty Fortress is Our God” and “Dear Christians, one and all, Rejoice” (My personal favorite!). Basically, he got on the Pope’s nerves a lot, and led many out of the dark into the Light of Christ.
